Didn't spot
My eyes are just not up to the task of finding that beetle in this image, although I do see the black mordellids standing out nicely on these white flowers. I'm also curious about the identity of the cerambycid in the middle of the frame. I doubt if Yanega's book would have it since it deals with northeastern longhorned beetle species.

 
We were thinking maybe Xestoleptura
